Brendan Rodgers’ return to Celtic this season has extended the club’s dominance in Scottish football this century.

Since 2000, Celtic has won 18 Scottish championships, 11 Scottish Cups, and ten League Cups. It’s a phenomenal record that demonstrates Celtic’s dominance in Scotland over the last 24 years.


However, that dominance is, in part, down to Brendan Rodgers over his two spells as the Celtic boss.


And now we’ll look at his record versus our Glasgow rivals, and how the Northern Irishman deserves a lot of credit for keeping Rangers at bay.


This season, the Celtic manager has earned the right to respond to his detractors after having to deal with a narrative being written about his squad.


However, Rodgers’ Celtic record over Rangers after yesterday’s Scottish Cup win stands out as the key contributory element in this season’s success and during his first stint.


Rodgers faced the Ibrox club for the 18th time as Celtic manager.


He has won 14, drawn three, and lost only once. This season, Rodgers has met the Ibrox club five times and won all but one.


Rodgers’ Celtic club has scored 40 goals and conceded only 12 during his tenure as manager.


Rodgers also led Celtic to one of their most impressive victory at Ibrox, a 5-1 defeat over Rangers in April 2017.


However, the most crucial success over our rivals was a 3-2 triumph over Rangers in March 2018 thanks to an Odsonne Edouard goal.


Rangers reduced Celtic’s Ibrox attendance from over 7500 to just over 700 over the last six years.


So Rodgers isn’t only smashing records; he’s also shattering the hearts of thousands of Rangers fans following yesterday’s victory at Hampden.
